    • Ideal solution for tight quarters

      We have a small kitchen and were tired of tripping over trash can AND recycling containers. This 2 in 1 is the ideal size and sleek so it fits in tight corners. Have had for almost 2 years now and it works like a champ.

    • very practical

      So far I love having both garbage and recycles side by side. The touch bar works smoothly and silently. The bins are easy to change and empty. The top unfortunately is already scratched as it is too easy for people to want to put things on top of the large surface!

    • No Fingerprints!

      This trash can is amazing! I love that it's stainless steel (even though all my appliances are white) but the fact that it's fingerprint resistant saves a whole lot of cleaning for us OCD-Clean-Freak individuals.

    • Great Kitchen Can

      We love having the recycle bin with the garbage bin in the kitchen. Not having to run recycle items out to the garage 2 times a day is wonderful. We should have gotten this item years ago with all the recycle items we have in this house. The first can that was sent had a couple dents in the side and the cust.svc. sent a new one out immediately without question and even set up a pickup at no cost for the return. Gotta love O's customer service!!

    • Slam Dunk Decision

      I never envisioned writing a review of a trashcan let alone thought I would ever purchase one online. In my search for perfection I had to take it online and overstock had exactly what I had been looking for at a somewhat reasonable price. The simplehuman stainless steel touch-bar recycle can has two compartments that separates your recycle from garbage. It is perfect for us for now because there are only two in the household. If you have any more than two people in the home, I would recommend a different product because it tends to fill quickly. Also, I find the touch bar more convenient than a step can but after many years of step can use I find myself looking for the step bar rather than just touching the top of the can with my wrist. This purchase came with simplehuman size G garbage bags to get us started. It was a great marketing ploy - but to be honest - it's just as easy to use a regular 13 gallon bag. Especially if you would like to use the recycle bags with significantly less plastic. Overall I really like the sleek look of the garbage/reclycle duo, it's functionality is just what I was looking for, and the price albeit a little on the expensive side was still worth it for me. I'm very happy with the product and I ordered it over a month ago.

    • I've never been so excited about a trash can!

      If you're thinking twice about spending more than ** for a trash can/recycle can, stop. Spend the money . . will love this! I have a small kitchen that is very contemporary. I used to have a round, stainless trash can, and a black plastic trash can for recycling. It looked awful, took up space, and made me crazy. . . . I was attempting to do an less-costly version of the this product. This (simplehuman Stainless Steel Touch-bar Recycle Can) is exactly what I wanted and needed all along. Very durable, as close to finger-print free as stainless can get. I love the easy open touch bar, much more than a foot pedal. I line the trash can with a bag and leave the recycle container unlined, so people know which side is which. I highly recommend this product.
